An Iraqi refugee family, with six children, is renting a very expensive apartment in Cologne and the city is paying for it, Germany’s Express reports.
The high rental price for the apartment of only 35-square-meters is the result of Germany’s panicking during the influx of migrants. To house refugees Cologne’s Housing Department booked other expensive houses and hotels as well.

Josef Ludwig of the Housing Department of the city says: “What else could I do? At that time, we made contracts with the arrival of the many refugees and booked 40 hotels with 3000 places. Now we are still at 2250 places. We simply did not have apartments available, especially not for large families.”
According to social worker Thorsten Kleinöder “The real scandal is that the family is not even housed decent. The eight person’s conditions there are catastrophic. Especially since the woman is pregnant. There is only one table for four; in the morning everyone should be ready for school at the same time and nobody can sleep properly at night and then the city will pay 6800 euros for it.”
Some contracts have even made landlords millionaires. One large building in the Rheinaustraße houses 157 refugees for which the city pays 28 euros ($34.50 US Dollars) per person on daily rent. The landlord collects almost 4,400 euros ($5,420.80 US Dollars ) rent per day or 1.6 million ( $1,971,104.00 US Dollar ) per year. Big business.
Officially, polygamy is banned in Germany, but several cases have already reached the surface. In the Bavarian district of Neumarkt an Iraqi refugee lives with his two wives and thirteen children, news portal Nordbayern reports.
“If the marriages took place in Muslim countries, where polygamy is allowed according to the law in force there, both women are considered wives in Germany as well. The polygamous marriage can then be continued without punishment. The Koran tolerates marriages with up to four women. Thus, those marriages are valid in many Muslim countries”, he says
Now the family lives in an apartment in Bavaria that is paid for by the German taxpayer. Last month it was reported about a ‘Sharia loving’ refugee who lives with his two wives and six children in Germany as well. The family is on benefits and thanks “mama Merkel” for her hospitality.
